Reading break has pretty much just started, but I feel like I don’t have time to take a break. I’ve picked up a bunch of extra shifts this week because I’m still saving for my Mexico trip with my friends (and it makes me not feel so bad for buying a few things for the VIB sale that starts tomorrow!!) and any time that I’m not at work, I either need to be working on a paper, finishing an assignment or studying for midterms. Conveniently, said paper, assignment and midterm are all on the same day! I also have a presentation that I need to be working on but haven’t touched. Help me.
Anyways, I just wanted to write a little update since the last time I posted was a little over a week ago and tbh I just needed a break from all the work haha. As I write this, my cat is laying in his favourite spot… my lap. I have a habit of keeping my feet on my chair whenever I’m sitting at my desk, and he’s gotten used to sticking his body in the space between my legs and chest. He always lays in the world’s most awkward positions, but he always looks so comfortable!
This past week has not been very kind to my wallet. And you’re probably rolling your eyes because I just said I was saving up for a trip. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT. I can treat myself if I want to!!!! H&M finally launched their online store in Canada and as a special deal for staff members, we got an extra 20% off of our 25% staff discount. I bought things that I had alway been meaning to buy, but never did because I couldn’t justify the purchase (remember, I HATE spending money on clothes. I’d rather spend it on food or makeup). I bought some basics as well as a new duvet cover which I was actually so pumped about. I also bought a planner for next year because my life always just seems so put together when I write fill out important days and write down things I need to do. (The planner was not from H&M by the way. Just throwing that out there.)
ALSO. Like I previously mentioned (although I’m sure everyone reading this is probably already aware) the VIB sale starts tomorrow. I’ve seen a loooot of people doing “Whats In My Sephora Basket” posts and I’ve always thought it was kind of weird because I always have tons of things in my Sephora basket but I never actually buy them. Like I feel like it doesn’t matter what’s in your basket, people fake flex all the time, it matters what you actually buy. Which is why I only pay attention to VIB haul posts/videos. No hate intended, it’s just my opinion. BUT. I’m gonna be a hypocrite and show yall whats in my basket anyways.
I’m buying the Smashbox Light It Up primer set because hello!!!! You get a FULL SIZE Photofinish primer (which is $45 CAD by itself) AND a travel size Photofinish primer water (which is $20 CAD). So I pretty much get a free primer water! Wow! Also because I ran out of the samples I got and this was a perfect opprtunity to restock.
Then I’m just getting the full sized De-Slick setting spray because I ran out of the 1oz bottle I bought and I really notice a difference in how my makeup looks when I use this (it looks better) and I don’t want to go back to being a greasy ray of sunshine at the end of these cold, dark winter nights. Why am I so dramatic.
Oh yeah! I noticed I have 50 followers now! Which isn’t a lot in comparison to others of course, but it’s still mind blowing to me that there are at least 50 people on this planet who read my posts and interact with me and show me love. I’m imaginging 50 people in one room and it looks like a lot in my head. Celebrating the small victories is just as important! So thank you 🙂
Okay this was enough of a distraction. I need to finish this paper. Hope you guys have a good rest of your night, and if you’re on reading break as well I hope you’re able to make the most of it! (Whatever that might be for you hehe)
